Netherwing Closed Beta

Netherwing Closed Beta

We are pleased to announce that Official Netherwing Closed Beta will begin on 17.02.2018. We are looking for dedicated, experienced and knowledgable people to help us test the content and provide additional information we can use to perfect it. Our goal remains providing the absolute highest quality of both PvE and PvP and we hope to achieve that with your help.

A bit of information about the beta:

- Start date 17.02.2018, precise time to be decided.
- End date depends entirely on development progress. Quality is our primary concern and we will be assessing the state of the realm once the majority of issues have been resolved. Once closed beta is finished,  an open beta will begin.
- Beta will be divided into phases in order to help us focus on completing our set objectives. The first phase for example, will be dedicated to TBC dungeons and raids.   
- Tester recruitment will oficially end on 15.02.2018. We might reopen it later depending on the progress of each phase.

If you wish to participate in the beta, please write a private message to Wolfenstein on our forum, containing the following:

- Your discord name (you have to join Netherwing discord channel)
- Testing preference (PvE/PvP/Quests/Other) and your experience/knowledge in that area
- Your experience with The Burning Crusade expansion and World of Warcraft in general
- Your previous experiences with emulation and testing (e.g. other projects)
- How much time you can devote to testing per week
- Any additional information which might convince us to invite you

Additional requirements:

- A Github account
- Patience and dedication
- Ability to search for information from TBC era
- Ability to create comprehensive and understandable bug reports
- Ability to organize tests (dungeon parties/duels) by yourself (Devs don’t have time to help with that)
- Being communicative and active (people who don’t talk/report issues will be removed)

Beta tests are extremely important to us. Any person treating it as an opportunity to only play around with basic commands or distrupt other testers will be removed instantly. It is also important to note that it’s not a finished product yet. There is still a lot of work to do and we have rewritten hundreds of minor and major core systems and mechanics which were not yet tested fully outside of a small group of people. We don’t want people to create a false image of the realm based on the beta (be it negative or positive), which is why it will be strictly forbidden to share information, videos or your testing account with other people. Everyone will be able to see and judge the server by themselves during the open beta.

If you happen to read this news but you don't really know what Netherwing is, here is a list of its main features:

- Blizzlike, x1 rates (Patch 2.4.3)
- Progressive, fully pre-nerf PvE content starting from patch 2.0.3
- 2.4.3 PvP balance
- First realm of our PTE project (TBC->WOTLK->Cataclysm) with characters being copied onto the realm with next expansion
- Content from patches 2.1 and beyond unavailable at release (Ogri’la, Skettis, Netherwing, Isle of Quel’Danas, dungeons and raids, etc.)
- An extremely immersive experience with hundreds of never seen before RP events and entirely repopulated and scripted world areas
- TBC Dungeons and raids rewritten entirely from scratch based on retail data, with attention to smallest details and adjusted to prenerf version (absolutely no previous/stock code, timers or ids used)
- A plethora of uncommon NPC mechanics and behaviours
- Entirely rewritten, unique and retail-like dynamic respawn and pooling systems
- Reworked and improved movement handling for players, creatures and pets (including Transport pathing and behaviour)
- A unique approach to NPC AI and many of its aspects
- Proper implementation of many PvP/Spell mechanics, including the only correct implementation of Spell Delay with all mechanics tied to it
- And a lot more to come…

We’ve mentioned earlier that we still have a lot of things to show, so here are two small videos we’d like to share:

We reorganized current forum to contain TBC section, which is why it's quite empty for now. It will be filled in time.

Awesome work!


cunoy 2018-01-30 02:51:30 #

really i like it..


Kervian 2018-01-30 09:01:58 #

Aren't you guys afraid of lack of population? There's already huge ass warmane around with really decent scripting (let's say its good enough to play). And theres also Gummy's (It's live, you can connect to it if you get realmlist).


kayze2012 2018-01-31 12:16:59 #

I don't mean to sound to out of place or irrational here, but can we get some support for the server that is already up and running? I have run into a lot of bugged quests and content for lower lvls and feel like they're being ignored because they're only done the one time then it's over. If we can get someone designated to fix quests and zone content, along with the calendar and broken achievements that would be much appreciated!


killermommy 2018-01-31 02:05:24 #

funny how both of you cry for 1 bug quest at each area and warmane with gummy's both of them big ass donate server (shop) so plz try to ope the tbc server you well get all players who don't looking for donate shops even if its gona take some time atlantiss tbc server well be the best like cataclyzam and all noobs rish kids like the 2 numbers who send comment behind me well stay at warmane


killermommy 2018-01-31 02:07:20 #

raynaresama 2018-02-01 04:25:17 #

so you're going AGAN from tbc proggresion to wotlk progression to cata progression while other servers will go to not bfa but invasion of the void lord and tentacle monsters 10.0 patch...and here,20 year old tbc and cata...yey...and best of all 1X,cuz whats better than leveling to be slow as fuck right??


kayze2012 2018-02-01 05:59:14 #

@killermommy; I take it you've never actually tried to quest through each zone? There are more than just "one quest" per zone that is bugged. If you actually care to look at the buggtracker you'd see there are plenty of bugged quests, zones, and dungeons for that matter. All I was trying to say is can we make one server as best as possible first before we go and try to spend more time starting another one.


azershamyss 2018-02-02 06:25:40 #

you should check out the competition before doing something like this , Warmane already got a very well scripted server which is overpopulated so what makes you think that your TBC server will attract people out of the atlantiss community ? I would say better make a legion server , not a big competition and attracts people to try it out also it could add some population to the cata server . Just sayin' :D good luck anyway and keep up the good work .


killermommy 2018-02-02 07:30:46 #

@kayze2012 if youknow any tbc server with out shop and work like blizzard plz tell me for that's why tbc server at atlantiss well get players like cata or maby more


killermommy 2018-02-02 07:31:33 #

killermommy 2018-02-02 08:00:55 #

idk why you people try so hard to not let atlantiss open tbc


Fesst 2018-02-02 08:08:54 #

@killermommy Because they are envious


Redcore 2018-02-12 12:19:04 #

@killermommy for me its all about the cata server. TBC server there´s a new one every week, but what do we have for cata? ( well now there´s Hades that still only has BoT and BwD ) . why not center their focus on continue to improve cata server instead of diverge man power to ... yet another tbc server?


killermommy 2018-02-13 12:19:54 #

you say it for your self 2 bosses still need to fix at cata and they work at DS so hard for now. then?? what they well do after that? cata work almost finish here


killermommy 2018-02-13 12:22:25 #
